What Is a Sphinx Wax?

A Sphinx wax is a process of hair removal using warm wax, specifically from the bikini line, which is the area of pubic hair visible while wearing a bikini. It is more commonly known as the Brazilian bikini wax, and other names include the Playboy, the Hollywood, the Frenchie and the G Wax.

Unlike shaving, waxing removes the whole of each hair, right down to the root. This means that it takes far longer to grow back, usually becoming visible after around two weeks. Before this point, a further waxing will generally not be possible because the extruding part of the hair is often too short for the wax paper to grip.
